Super Pea Souper

Kids can be fussy – well, mine can! According to one of our allergists, children with allergies can be more fussy than most. Apparently it’s a protection mechanism that is particularly important for young children with allergies so they have some control over what they eat and prevent accidental allergic reactions. Well, that was his opinion, and it makes me feel a little better about having children with limited diets who are also rather fussy. Smooth soups can be an easy way to pack in the ‘scary’ veg without too much trauma. This recipe must be the simplest, easiest and most packed full of pea flavour that you could find. You will almost always have the 4 ingredients to hand to create a nutritious and frankly delicious lunch in about fifteen minutes.

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.
